Re: VOB Files DON'T Play Smoothly on Archos

I have a 504, a 605, a 5 and a 7, and I've never had a VOB stutter on any of them, ever.

Re: HD Recording

From what I read front end hd encoding doesn't need alot of processing power to record. Its the decoding that takes a ton of processing power on the back end. That's not true. It takes FAR more processing power to encode than to decode. I think brdystyls is confusing HD recording with HD encoding. ...

Redownload. Sometimes if the file name gets changed, that will cause it also.

Re: Should I be seeing Video on the A7 from my source, using DVR

You should see video. However, the component inputs on the DVR do not handle HD (720p or 1080i). You'll have to knock your Sat receiver's outputs down to 480. sigh, another design flaw.... :doubt: It's definitely a limitation... it takes a lot of horsepower to encode 720p or 1080i in real-time. My ...

Good question.. how old are we to come on ArchosFans.com and whine on about how we sold our product. You don't own a 5 anymore... so move along.

Re: Another magnificent feature for the archos - opinions?

I believe Archos tried something similar with the Archos TV... and called it the teleportation plug-in. But it never really took off.

I believe the terms of the Archos warranty (I don't have it in front of me..) specify that you must purchase the product from an authorized retailer.

Re: Should I be seeing Video on the A7 from my source, using DVR

The title says it all. I have my sat receiver using component video out to input of the A7 DVR. Should I be seeing the video on the A7? When I try to record, it starts but then stops with an error. I never see any video at any time and I have the a7 configured for a component input. You should see ...

Re: Archos7 mini-dock -tv discolour image HELP

There have been several reports of poor video out of the mini-dock, over in the Archos 5 forum (it uses the same dock). Apparently, it would seem large numbers of these went out with poor video. Some users have reported sending the units back to Archos and getting one that works properly.
